DAMASCUS, July 5 (Xinhua) -- A booby trapped motorcycle went off near a bakery store in Syria's northeastern province of al-Hasakah on Tuesday, killing 16 and wounding tens of others, a monitor group reported.
The blast hit near a bakery in the Salhiyeh neighborhood and left many wounded people in critical conditions, said the report.
Meanwhile, state news agency SANA reported the blast, placing the death toll at 10.
Al-Hasakah has witnessed several deadly bombings throughout the country's five-year-old conflict with the Islamic State (IS) group claiming responsibility.
Much of that province is under the control of the Kurdish People Protection Units (YPG), which is engaged in battles against the IS on several fronts in northern Syria.
